SketchfestSketchFest NYC 08 is fast approaching and this year's 28 act line-up (spread out over three nights) is absolutely nuts. The producers have really outdone themselves with the best of the best, culled from all corners of North Americawesome....

Twenty-eight different groups from around North America will converge on the UCB Theatre on June 12th, June 13th, and June 14th. Each night, New York audiences will experience the absolute best sketch comedy from Canada, Portland, Chicago, Austin, Seattle, Los Angeles, and New York City itself.
SketchfestHighlights of the schedule include appearances by Kurt & Kristen, The Harvard Sailing Team, Elephant Larry, Rue Brutalia, God's Pottery, The Onion News Network LIVE, as well as Rock n' ROFL sponsor The Sound of Young America LIVE with special musical guest Dawn Landes. And one absolutely cannot miss the Closing Night Craptacular hosted by Rob Lathan (seen at the bottom of this post) and Adira Amram.

SketchfestI'm definitely more of a stand-up guy when it comes to what makes me laugh. Good sketch isn't easy to pull off. Often times I have to see several sketch performances before one comes along that will crack me up. However, the line-up of this year's SketchFest is definitely going to deliver laughs from the first act to the closing ceremony. I really wish they could shoe-horn Brett Gelman's 1000 Cats performance into the schedule though. Anyhow, TICKETS: $10, Individual Tickets; $40, Nightly Passes; $100, Full Festival Passes; available at ucbtheatre.com, 212-366-9176, or at the door. Full schedule below....

Wow. This look awesome. Go see the Apple Sisters. They are hilarious, hardworkin' ladies that are blowing up! Dirty Jeans and Thunderchief could be the best or worst thing in the whole world. I won't miss it. Backpack Picnic are insanely weird and fun.
